OWEN SCOTT of William Hill is finally off the mark in the betting challenge – but he needed some help from the wintry weather.

Only one of Owen’s matches survived last weekend but a winner at 4-7 means he banks £15.27 and closes the gap slightly on McBookie’s Paul Petrie who has won £153.20 so far to £10 stakes. Here’s what the duo are on this weekend.

Owen writes: And we’re off … Banks O’Dee won to give me my first return of the season. Although by no means an earth-shattering return I’m taking it all of the same and this weekend I’m looking to get another winner just in time for Santa dropping in.

Again looking at the weather forecast picking matches that will beat the frost may be trickier than picking winners. I’m starting with a match that should definitely be on due to their artificial surface and I’m taking Petershill at 4-5 to beat Kilbirnie. Both sides have been a bit inconsistent of late but Petershill’s home form this season has been decent and I expect them to take all three points.

Maybole (4-5) are next on my list as they play host to Ardeer. Now under new management Maybole will be hoping they can recreate some of the great form they showed early in the season.

Another match which is sure to be on – again on plastic and near the coast – is Largs v Kilsyth and both sides look to have turned around their seasons a bit after a poor start. I think the game is too difficult to call and I’m going to go for a draw at 23-10.

Paul writes: First up I am going for to Blairgowrie beat Scone at 1-2. Scone have had some good results this season but have hit a bad patch in recent weeks and the Berrypickers should be too strong for them.

Next I am going for Forfar WE to beat Carnoustie at 21-10. I tipped this up a few weeks ago but the weather meant the game was called off. The reasoning is the same as I think the home side always struggle against lower-league opposition who seem to raise their games. At the price it is worth the risk.

And finally I am going back to Culter at 1-2 to beat Falkirk in the Scottish Cup. The game has been moved to Montrose’s 3G park so shouldn’t have any weather issues. The bigger pitch should also play into the North Region side’s hands.
